Inbound is the complete, integrated purchase order management system that optimizes operational efficiency while streamlining transactions with outside carriers.

Manage your POs intuitively and more effectively with a suite of tools to consolidate, optimize and tender your loads.

Our web-based Carrier Portal simplifies negotiations with outside carriers, allowing them to counter and accept tender requests on a single screen.

Natively integrated with our Outbound TMS, Inbound allows you to pass back extra loads that you want handled by your private fleet, eliminating paperwork and increasing operational efficiency.
